Reads for Sunday

Of course, the urban legend of early AIDS patient Gaetan Dugas being the "Typhoid Mary" of AIDS by supposedly introducing it to North America is wrong. It has been known for many years the disease or HIV was around many decades before he was even born. It had already been in North America before he embarked on his freewheeling lifestyle. The short adaptation of Spillover, called The Chimp and the River, traces the disease's origins.

A rare video, perhaps the only one existing of Dugas, who died in early 1984, is here or can be viewed here.

The National Review decided to hold its nose and its stomach and endorsed Ted Cruz for president.
